I'm getting unexpected results with my Radmind updates, and I suspect that there's a problem in one or more of my transcripts, or the order in which they are applied to the system. How do I resolve this?

It's helpful to track down problems by using commands such as twhich (from Radmind) or grep to discover what files are listed in the transcripts you're applying to the local computer.

   twhich -a /path/to/file/object

For example, some applications modify or depend on the same file system objects. Or you might have accidentally added an object to a overload that isn't needed.

Once you know where files or changes are coming from, you can examine the order of the transcripts listed in the command file, and how one transcript may thus override another.

In some cases, your base operating system loadset may not be as "clean" as you would like -- you may have files in it that did not come from your operating system. For example, depending on how you built it, your base operating system loadset may include the Radmind tools themselves.
